3D4Med and MAT(T)ISSE Workshop
3D printing as a promising technique for tissue regeneration: towards the 4D printing?
December 10th, 2020 | 9.00 – 11.00 am CET
European projects 3D4Med and MAT(T)ISSE are jointly organising a workshop dedicated to « 3D printing as a promising technique for tissue regeneration: towards the 4D printing?».
This workshop is the opportunity for 3D4Med and MAT(T)ISSE partners to share their works on the development of polymer implants for biomedical applications through 3D printing, new bioprosthesis such as scaffolds and tissue engineering techniques. These combined innovations help the body restore damaged tissues following, for example, a surgical intervention.
Clinicians, researchers and industries are the panellists of this workshop.
You are interested in this topic? You would like to share ideas, solutions, questions on tissues regeneration and 3D Printing? Meet us on Thursday, December 10th 2020 from 9:00 to 11:00am CET!
Stay tuned, the full programme is coming soon!

Goal : Develop innovative 3D matrices for tissue engineering in order to rebuild, regenerate or replace the function of defective tissues or organs. Innovation lies in the formulation of new polymers and on the other hand in the preparation of individualised implants.
Nearly 1 out of 8 European women will be affected by a breast cancer during her life.
The main surgical intervention to cure breast cancer today is mastectomy (73%) which remains a complicated intervention, often leading to a loss of self-esteem, sexual issues as well as a need for body acceptance. Only 20% of these women benefit from a breast reconstruction, either with silicone implants or transplants of tissues, requiring several interventions and presenting clinical risks and hurdles.
MAT(T)ISSE project aims to address these clinical challenges by developing, with the support of a multidisciplinary partnership across France and Belgium, a brand new solution for breast reconstruction. The innovation will consist of a 3D-printed bioresorbable and textile matrix to facilitate the transplant of tissues, as well as to guide the breast reconstruction process. This breakthrough innovation opens the way for a personalised and safer breast reconstruction, in a single intervention.
Research and process optimization activities conducted under MAT(T)ISSE project represent a gateway to further developments for various medical applications. As of 2020, the European regulatory framework for medical devices will be reinforced and specified to better frame the custom-made medical devices market.
